OWEGO (WBNG) -- Ice Cream Works held a fundraiser for ITP Awareness month and to honor one of their coworkers today.
Abbey Luffman passed away back in January due to a rare blood disease, ITP. ITP stands for Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. It's a disorder that affects platelets in the blood that are used for blood clotting.
Part of the proceeds will go to Abbey’s scholarship at Owego Free Academy, and her coworkers are donating their tips, too.
Abbey’s family will be doing a virtual walk to raise money for the Platelet Disorder Support Association.
Marcy Luffman, Abbey's mom, says they appreciate Ice Cream Works for holding this fundraiser.
"I know the community has been wonderful supporting us through all of this and it really means the world to us," Luffman said. "Makes us very happy."
